I have to say it's been a pretty dull few days in the world of training.
I had to work on Saturday, so I moved my long run to Sunday, which, since I was in a recovery week was only (only!) seven miles. It was cold and windy, but turned out to be a nice run. I met Elton and our friend Bryan out at the beach, where they had just finished a nice 25 mile bike ride and were commencing on a run. I am loving the new Garmin for situations like this. Map it before I go? Nope, I know I can run up 1st Street until I hit 3.5 miles then turn around. It's awesome, I'm really happy I went with that. My pace was pretty decent, particularly given the gale-force winds. Sort of felt like I was going to blow away. Very over the gusty winds of the last few days.
I went for my recovery run last night which turned into more of a recovery walk. My legs just felt awful. Elton went with me, so he walked with me when I walked and made me feel a bit better about having a crappy run. I'm hoping my legs will feel better for tonight's six miles.
It's also been coooold here, which has been kind of nice. It makes running feel so different. I also have turkey chili simmering in the crockpot for my post-run meal and Elton's post-brick meal.
What's your favorite cold weather comfort food?
